Te Nīkau Hospital & Health Centre blood test services set to relocate

Tuesday 25 January 2022Health news2 minutes to read

Please attribute to Philip Wheble, General Manager – West Coast DHB.

Te Nīkau Hospital & Health Centre blood test services (phlebotomy) is set to relocate next week to the Community Services building located at the south-western corner of the Te Nīkau campus.

West Coast DHB’s General Manager Philip Wheble says that from next Monday (31/01/2022), you will find our blood test services team in their new location where they will be co-located with our Greymouth COVID-19 vaccination and Sexual Health teams.

“This move is part of our COVID-19 response planning which has included reviewing patient flow in and out of the Te Nīkau facility. As around 400 people access this service each week – an average of 80 people per day – we decided to relocate the team now instead of when we start to see COVID-19 cases on the Coast.”

If you are coming into the hospital and health centre campus off High Street turn left and follow the new signage around to the new location. Alternatively, you can also access the campus via the Waterwalk Road entrance opposite and just south of the St John building.

The hours of operation will remain the same – 7:30am – 4:30pm weekdays. Parking will be available outside the building.

ENDS
